Risky rate of the last decision of the Swedish firm Saab 9-4x No diesel engined. What does this mean? Of course, in Europe, a bump as big or more than the car itself. To survive in the European market is crucial to have a diesel engine catalog, which will be the most hog sales (especially in this type of car).
In the absence diesel may choose only two mechanical gasoline for 2.8T V6 300Hp and a 3.0 of 265, also six cylinders in V (Europe only will the 3.0, and is sufficient) End post
From Autoblog Saab have informed that they are aware that without a diesel mechanic will not have much success in Europe, but still the head of the company, Jan Ake Jonsson, has said he is more than likely never see a 9-4x diesel .
The case for diesel engines are not for breaking ties with GM, they were without him, and now have to start looking or develop an engine, test it, bring it to production, so ratify it. They say that this whole process would be lost at least 80% of the commercial life of the vehicle (the estimated five or six years)
Jonsson also confirmed that the company will begin distribution in China in 2011 and may soon confirm a distribution agreement for Russia.
